Punctal plug insertion and/or lacrimal irrigation - what did this FEEL LIKE to you?

Some docs have Keratographs so they can estimate tear meniscus height more precisely. Yet I find they can never...

OcuSoft Lid Wipes Or Cliradex

Which of the two would you recommends against demodex?

Does Ocusoft even have TTO in it?
